issues with defense money that is going to israel. they do not think it is going to israel but terrorist hands. they have a petition now on one of our local radio stations to get on the internet and go ahead and put your name on it that you do not want your money being spent because it is not proven that it is going to the israel government. >> you're calling us from missouri. in a little while we look good to the missouri senate race debate. that is a debate between clearly paschal -- claire macaskill and tod akin. what they're using is the big issues in that race? caller: a lot people are mad. they think that we can do better with our government, like rummy promises. -- like to make money promises. yes been in business. he knows how to make it work. i completing to the american people that they get him a chance. i have had a full-time job in a part-time job trying to make it as a single mother. also, it is a feeling in faith. host: how is it influence your vote in the senate race? caller: i'm going to go republican. that is the way i am feeling. you know,. host: here to give us more in
to be. that is a matter between israel and the palestinians, and the u.s. can nudge and between and all of that. but in the end, if netanyahu and the palestinians are not in the position to bring resolution to this, then at it is not really going to be something that president obama can do. certainly something he would like very much to do. netanyahu -- i mean, now that the election is over, i think we will see prime minister netanyahu have a recalculation of the relationship with obama and how it has to go forward. it has not been close in the previous four years. it has been pragmatic and grudgingly accepting a reality on both sides, but there is an opportunity for that to change. host: do you have thoughts on that, scott? guest: just a follow-up. netanyahu had a personal relationship with romney and was a very secret about who he wanted to win the election and that was not president obama, who applied quite a bit of pressure to israel in his first term to try to secure a peace deal called israel settlements in the west bank. israel felt sort of hard-done by a lot of this bit of the a
the importance of the relationship, the special relationship with israel. and this is a president that has frankly abandoned, thrown israel under the the bus. this is a president who has appeased the enemies of the united states, whether it's castro brothers, whether it's chavez or others and apologizes for the united states and when mitt romney is elected we're going to change that and get somebody in the white house with backbone who understands we have to support our allies and support our friends and frankly, oppose our adversaries and enemies. and the thing is here, you have a governor making tough decisions, but approval ratings are out 40%. and how does that translate? >> look, you know, the governor has inherited a very difficult situation, and, buts' making it better and his numbers are getting better and i think you'll see that his numbers continue to get better. people in florida are sophisticated and continue not to accept this. what we have right now is the best that the country has to offer. i have a seven-year-old son,'s going to be seven in december. for his sake, he deserv
. an israeli news channel is reporting that israel is preparing for an imminent strike on iran's nuclear program in 2010. it's part of a larger documentary set to air tonight. the order to prepare for the attack was given by prime minister benjamin netanyahu in a meeting of ministers. but several questioned whether they had the authority to give the order, and preparations were called off. >>> police in savannah, georgia, looking for whoever opened fire on a crowded fair this weekend, shooting seven people. this happened saturday night as the coastal empire fair was'wraiwas'wr wrapping up. 6 of the 7 hit were teenagers. police say they are going to be okay. police have not ruled out the possibility of a second shooter. >>> tonight friends and family will gather together to remember a montgomery county teenager who was hit and killed by a car while walking to school. christina morris moore died last week crossing germantown road at wisteria drive when she was hit. tonight's vigil will be held at seneca valley high school. >>> 5:48. a fairfax county family is asking for the public's help i
type of individual who is ready to stand very, very firmly by u.s. allies, particularly israel. and someone who is very different by nature with, compared with president obama. melissa: so what do you think he would do on day one that would stop iran in its tracks? >> he has himself said that he is ready to tough inch the sanctions which are already in place. and, i also believe that it would send sufficient signals to tehran they need to capitulate their nuclear program. they have absolutely no opportunity to once more use the delaying tactics to give some kind of negotiations in order to gain time. let's not forget. right now president obama's government is engaged in secret talks with iran. all that sends the wrong signals to the regime in tehran because they believe they can gain time having this kind of negotiations. melissa: i hear you but, say mitt romney were elected and came in with an iron fist. wouldn't that cause them to accelerate the timeline that we better do this quick and because the u.s. is not messing around and they get to the bomb quicker? >> regime has use
, the president has not visited israel once. the jewish commercially -- community -- we feel he doesn't have our back. romney has made a strong point that he will have our back. host: did romney's relationship with the jewish community come up? guest: as a candidate he talks about the fact that he has a personal relationship dating back to time and harvard with ande minister aniston netanyahu that will be benefit. he said the united states position towards israel will be complete support. it was not clear how he would respond if israel tried to take out nuclear facilities in iraq. i think republicans feel they have made some headway, particularly in florida with jewish voters. we will see. host: brian mooney has covered politics in massachusetts for decades. he has been with "the boston globe" since 1988 and has been a political columnist. right now he goes by the title reporter. a story you did last year when health care was a big issue. looking back on the health-care issue, you recall that he went to get his official portrait done. he would be at his desk wearing a business suit and tie. host
made history. [applause] host: this tweet from benjamin netanyahu, the prime minister of israel, who congratulates u.s. president barack obama on his election victory. fort lauderdale, florida. independent line. caller: thank you for taking my call. host: did you vote yesterday or early in florida? caller: a voted early. actually, i went out and did some last minute can the scene for the present, and i will tell you -- can this -- canvassing for the president. i always try to keep myself informed, and one of the things i realized about mitt romney is although he was a good businessman, the businesses that he had or businesses that he consolidated and got rid of jobs. so, we also had another businessman that was a president, hoover, and the country went into a depression. we have a businessman, george bush, that was the president, and our country almost went into a depression after that. people have to realize that when our elected officials are irresponsible by saying we have to be like a household, the government is not run like our household. that is totally ridiculous. it is absol
one nation that we should be nation-building with, and that's israel. because israel -- israel is -- that's god's chosen land. the jews are god's chosen people. host: ok, connie, let's give fred barnes a chance to comment. guest: well, i mean that was an issue between romney who was much more pro israel though publicly in particular. we'll see how that turns out. i personally don't begrudge him a vacation after the campaign, like to take one myself. but there was another part -- oh, yeah. what she said in the beginning about the republican party. is it really in deep trouble? i don't think so. obviously hispanics are a problem. younger senators and governors, they have 30 governors who are extremely important, 30 out of 50. like bob mcdonald in virginia and bobby jindal and scott walker in wisconsin and so on. republicans actually -- romney actually won i believe the middle class. if you have the middle class as people who make between $50,000 a year and $100,000 a year, romney won that group narrowly. the middle class is up for grabs but romney did well enough there but just n
right, my top issue is that there's all this controversy about whether or not israel is going to go to war with iran. and when president obama spoke about the big yellow bird, i don't think he was talking about the big yellow bird, i think he was talking, you know, big bird on tv, i think he was talking about china. china, you know, chinese people, oriental people are referred to as yellow. china has the largest population on earth, a billion people. they have so many people that they force women to have abortions. they have no respect for human life at all. and china is friends with iran. china is trading partners with iran. if we help israel go to war with iran, then we're going to have to deal with an angry china, and i think that's a really big problem, and we have to just put a stop to it and negotiate peace. >> well, as i said in the opening statement that, um, i really feel that our biggest problem is the deficit, but i believe that the reason why we haven't been able to, um, to lower the national debt is because our political system is broken. and we need to fix it, or this

dianne feinstein, right after america's news headquarters. israel, it appears that has been drawn into the conflict in siriasm the israeli military says its forces fired warning shots into syria, in response to a stray mortar shell that landed in a golan heights settlement. no one was hurt, but there are fears that the syrian war could broaden and into turn into a regional conflick. the israeli forces have filed a complaint with the united nations. fruferations are boil over in new york as the lights lights ad much-needed heed -- heat are out. the power company says it could be until tuesday or later to get the area fully restored. we go live to oceanside, new york, with more. >> reporter: hello to you, shannon. the numbers can be very misleading as to how many people are cold and in the dark. that's because tens of thousands of them have electrical equipment that is so internally damaged by super storm sandy's storm surge, that it needs to be repaired, tested and certified for the power companies to get going and try to fix that problem for them. angry residents protested and new
on the global stage? >> yeah, from world leaders out in israel, benjamin netanyahu congratulating barack obama on his re-election. president putin in russia saying the same thing. but one thing i can tell you is that the taliban telling barack obama it's time to get out of afghanistan. so, a stern message from them. >> all right, abc's mark greenblat reporting from capitol hill, live this morning, we thank you, mark. and we're going to extend to you our olive branch as well. >> thank you. >> good to see this kind of tone though on capitol hill. especially considering just how divisive it has been. it's good for america to see this. john boehner coming out today. harry reid as well. boehner said, we can't keep setting the bar that low. it is time we raise the bar. i loved what he said about we are ready to be led not as democrats or republicans, but as americans, not as a liberal or conservative, but as the president of the united states. >> that's the quote mark alluded to. you hope that in light of -- i mean, there are dual messages last night. the country overwhelmingly elected barack obama
